I was never much of a hippie, but there was a great underground comic book store I used to frequent back in the '70s. Alas, the owner died, the building got bulldozed, and I moved to another state. Life goes on, and the '70s are dead to me now (except for the b-movies). I went into a comic book store yesterday, and it was full of kids (must have been 30 or 40 of 'em sitting at tables) playing some kind of games. Nobody was reading comics, not a one. Pathetic!

I know what you mean. However, at the age of 48 I'm still addicted to comics (make mine Marvel) and I can't pass by the local comics store without at least stopping in. Last time I went in they had a bunch of vintage "Famous Monsters" so of course out came the credit card! Never grew up, never will. How did you choose your screen name anyway? I came up with mine because my last name is Guy and my favorite monster is Godzilla.

I've got a few years on you...usually get the "senior discount" when eating out. Ugh. The name was a pretty random choice. I still love the very early Marvels (Ditko-Kirby era), but only have some of the Masterworks books. My comic collection is long gone after too many moves.

Kirby was the king.

I was more of a Ditko/Spidey fan, but liked Kirby/FF too. Also like Don Heck, a very underrated artist. The Amazing Fantasy Omnibus is an expensive book, but is my favorite Marvel reprint release.

We would be somewhat remiss if we didn't give a little tip of the hat to Gene Colan's "Daredevil" or "Iron Man". Maybe he didn't create them, but he sure defined them!
